Hmm..... I'm not the best when it comes to box oild etc, the last time mine got done my mechanic mate did it for me as this was before my spannering days.

The box oil should be the same as the mira classic, Ive got a classic box/diff on mine so it fits the jb-jl so I cant see how different it could be. I did find that my box was quieter following an oil change so that may help. The L500 service data thread does list 75w-85 for both gearbox and transfer box http://forum.keikarsinthepark.co.uk/index.php?topic=1273.0

When my diff went, it sounded horrible but there wasnt really a build up of noise before it. The noise was present regardless of gear/neutral but got louder with speed.

In terms of topping it up, I believe there is a sump plug on the rear of the gearbox itself, im not sure about transfer box, my mechanic had the car on a ramp and used something like this to fill it up http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Draper-Oil-Suction-Gun-Hand-Pump-Syringe-Gearbox-Diff-/130651944976?pt=UK_Hand_Tools_Equipment&hash=item1e6b767810 this was due to obvious gravity issues.

You may be able to get away with changing it all yourself but as with a lot of jobs im sure a lift would make life much easier.

If it's leaking gearbox or diff oil then obvioudly youre going to lose lubrication which could be causing you issues. therefore, its probs best to replace the oil and try and detect where the leak is coming from and attempt to sort it otherwise youll just end up going round in circles.

Fingers crossed if you do that you will be fine :thumb:

Fair enough, I hope you can sort it! while youre messing about with oil its probably worth changing the rear diff oil too.

So next part of the Tazo saga.. Just drove it up the road to get some food and after 2 mins I have steam pouring out from around the turbo and a big pool of coolant on the floor dripping.....  :(

Any ideas? i am presuming because it has been sat for a while before I got it then it is probably some hose has perished and cracked under pressure... Boooo!!!!

Still love the car.....

To me that sounds as if the turbo coolant feed has perished at some point. The original is made of metal but the one on my car was covered in that liquid metal stuff when I got it so I can only assume that it had a leak that was bodged.

Seeing as you probably have no coolant left now its probably worth taking it off to inspect it. If I remember correctly, its the left most hose (stood at the front of the car) on the radiator which attaches to the metal coolant feed pipe which then follows round to the turbo. it then goes under the turbo and joins the engine just above the oil filter. To get easy access to this just take the front bumper off.

The way I see it is you have two options if it has corroded.

1. Cut the metal coolant pipe short so you just have the turbo connecting part with a bit of pipe sticking out and a small offcut to connect to the pipe on the engine block and then make up the gaps using standard coolant hose and jubilee clips.

2. See if you can get a professional company to make you up something decent. I wouldnt really know who to ask for this but with my uprated turbo I used http://www.pirtek.co.uk/ to make me up some custom braided oil feed and returns. I don't know if they could do the coolant pipe thing, you would have to speak to them.

Glad youre still enjoying the car though. The faults all add to the enjoyment when you get to drive it!
